Cardy: Gift (J.Crew); Blouse: Secondhand (from BFF Amber's closet); Belt: J.Crew Factory; Pants: Urban; Shoes: Buffalo Exchange


My first 30 for 30 outfit! Didn't put much thought into this one. I knew it was a 'pants' day... so I wore pants. Then I just threw this shirt and cardigan together. And added more color with the belt and the pumps. Voila! The first day of the 30 for 30 is very easy. Let's hope it stays this way.

Matt and I are in charge of etiquette night for the teenagers at church. (Does this make us etiquetticians?)  It focuses on dating etiquette. Which reminds me of one time I was on a date in high school before a dance. And my date stole silverware from the restaurant we were eating at. Charming, yes? (PS It wasn't Matt.)

Oh yeah, and here are a few of Matt...It's been a while since he's made an appearance on this blog.

We are a cardigan-wearing couple.

Thanks Matt, for letting me eat all of the Kit-Kats in our assorted Valentine chocolates bag. And also, thanks for coming up with the clothesline idea in my 30 for 30 post. And thanks for not asking for any credit for it. And thanks for actually forgetting it was your idea in the first place. Thanks, Matt. Thatt.

PS I was featured on Walk of Fashion yesterday! Check out my interview... if you want. I mean, you don't have to if you don't want to. I just mean, you can. If you want to.

  8. you are one of those rare people that has the ability to look effortless, like you just threw your outfit together and walked out the door, and still look all pulled together and great! and now you're telling me you don't have to try to make yourself look like that? this is just unfair.

  52. LOVE this outfit.

    Also, one time a guy asked me to a movie and offered me a bag of popcorn that I later discovered he picked up from the ground by a trash can. If you could teach your YM that that is not acceptable I think the girls of the world will thank you.

  53. Cute! Best of luck on the 30-for-30 Challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  54. CUTE :)
    I SERIOUSLY love that shirt and that cardigan. In fact, when you posted your 30 for 30 those were the two that I was like "if I raid her closet I have to take those, what would I wear them with? hmmmm...." not that said closet raiding would ever come to be. That would just be too good to be true :)

  59. You should probably post more pictures of Matt on here; he dresses pretty awesome too. Also, he looks like Tony Hawk. One of my friends totally had a crush on him before you two started dating...partly due to his Tony Hawk-like appearance.
